Woman on Window Sill
Empower Women and Girls

We have noticed depression, anxiety, psychological distress, sexual violence, domestic violence, poor body image, eating disorders and escalating rates of substance use affect women to a greater extent than men throughout the world. We understand various societal, cutrual and political  factors put womxn at greater risk of poor mental health than men.

 

Despite the challenges women have been going through in everyday lives, we also noticed incredible resilience in our community. The strong desire to grow, the readiness and willingness to seek have been saving us in our darkest moments. And most mental health conditions are treatable when you reach out for help! Let us create a sanctuary for women and girls. Let our loving and caring therapists empower you through feminist, strengths-based and tailored approaches. Let us help you to be your own rescuer!

anxiety

We understand the unique challenges in our female community. Because of sexism, societal pressures and the lingering impact of traditional gender roles, we struggle to perfect our looks, perform flawless in social settings, balance all the roles ( professional, partner, mother, daughter, caretaker...) for other people!!!

 Set aside an hour each week with our highly skilled and compassionate anxiety specialists. Let us teach you how to better manage anxious thoughts. We will help you acquire the emotional and interpersonal tools that you need  to soothe your mind and set boundaries. And make your life your own!

Eating disorder

The unfortunate reality is that most of us have some distorted ideas about what our bodies should look like. Eating disorders sometimes lead to serious mental and physical health problems, and in severe cases, starvation of the body leads to heart failure and death. Anorexia nervosa has the HIGHEST death rate of any psychiatric illness  (including major depression).  

 

Overeating is NOT a moral failure

Food it NOT the enemy. 

Your body is NOT the problem.

The CULTURE is!

 Let us help you to make peace with food by giving yourself unconditional permission to eat without GUILT or SHAME. Let us help you to rebuild the trust with your Body. Full recovery is freedom. And it's possible with support and treatment!
